- There was a lot of excitement about the program, right from the start.
- To kick off the weekend, the participants discussed the qualities of an effective journalist and an effective SPJ leader. They found that a lot of these characteristics overlap.
- They then broke into two teams to compete in a team building exercise. The tarp game forces people two work together to complete the task at hand: flipping over the tarp while all members remain standing on it.

- On the first evening, we ate dinner together. Participants got to know one another as well as hear a speech from President-Elect Dana Neuts about the state of the society.
